Volume 700: debated on Tuesday 25 March 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their response to the statement by Professor Justin St John at the University of Warwick that transferring a human cell into recipient pig eggs “will generate the first human only cloned embryonic stem cell line”, as quoted on the website of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority. [HL2524]

The statement by Professor Justin St John is an extract from the lay summary of a research licence application taken from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) website that is currently before the HFEA for consideration. Decisions on the licensing of such research is a matter for the HFEA.
